There is now a full-fledged Japanese pa band dedicated to spreading the message of bitcoin and more. Welcome to 2018.

Everyone from Kodak to that stranger you swiped right on is hop-skip on the cryptocurrency wagon these days. So it was only a matter of time before it permeated into the music you listen to.

According to a discovery made by Quartz, the group’s honour( Kasotsuka Shojo) is translated into –< em> drumroll please — Virtual Currency Girls. Numerous cryptocurrencies are represented within the all-girl group, like Ethereum, Bitcoin, Neo, and more. It’s worth noting that Bitcoin is recognized as legal currency in Japan, where the group is located.

“We want to promote the idea through entertainment that virtual currencies are not just a tool for surmise but are a wonderful technology that will shape the future, ” Rara Naruse, the group’s reported commander, told AFP in an online announcement.

There are eight members, and they’re doing just what Naruse says, with songs like, “The Moon and Virtual Currencies and Me.” It’s their introduction single, which apparently proclaims to listeners about online its safety and hoax, and admittedly “its by” catchy.

Regardless of whether or not the cryptocurrency bubble outbursts, let’s hope this band at least living on eternally.

Oh, and if you’re trying to catch a display from them( their live entry is Friday, January 12 ), know this: you must pay for your ticket with a cryptocurrency. Obviously.
